Along with the boys was a poodle named Bella, and Zeus immediately has a crush on her. Despite the surprised guests there, George tries to have the best Christmas ever.

Meanwhile, Ted and Stewey are after London James's necklace, so they steal it, but they accidentally leave it at the gift shop, where George lets Zeus buy it (thinking it's a $5 dog collar.) for Bella. Ted and Stewey kidnap Bella, so Zeus goes after her. Zeus follows the two crooks to their hotel room. Ted and Stewey go to get Chinese food as Zeus goes into the house to save Bella.

Zeus frees Bella and the two try to escape but get caught by the two robbers. Zeus and Bella escape with the help of Trooper, a help dog who had a crush on Bella and used to bully Zeus helps them.
